Galaxy S23 Ultra could be a low-light monster
Evidence has emerged that the Samsung Galaxy S23 Ultra camera can be an absolute monster in low light.
We have received countless leaks and tips regarding the specifications and features of the upcoming Galaxy S23 Ultra from official and unofficial sources.
There’s a bit of both in this last statement, namely that the Galaxy S23 Ultra’s camera system will be a serious contender in low light. First, let’s deal with the official part of the story. Samsung itself posted the following 14-second teaser on its YouTube account:
The video shows the moon rising, eventually superimposed with the stylized word “Mooon” and the “O” replaced by three Galaxy S23 camera modules. The video ends with the words “Epic nights are coming.”
It would seem that this is a clear indication that the Galaxy S23 series will have increased night shooting potential and, quite possibly, an algorithm for processing moon shots.
As for the Galaxy S23 Ultra specifically, alleged night shots taken directly from the phone have surfaced online thanks to Twitter user Edward Urbina (via Android Headers).
Of course, these images seem to show a camera system that excels at capturing celestial bodies and extremely dark scenes in general. Twitter is posting a series of comparison shots of dark scenes in normal and night mode, showing off the hard work that Samsung’s algorithms do.
Naturally, the heavy compression on Twitter isn’t a great way to get an overview of the camera’s shooting capabilities, but it hints at something special.
Rest assured that we will review the entire Galaxy S23 lineup after it is announced on February 1st.
